MEET OLIVIA

This is VERY little about me, but more so about YOU, YOUR LOVE, and YOUR STORY! Dive in to see how !

Not everyone knows where to start or how to think about certain things when prepping for a wedding.  That is why I create numerous Wedding Prepping Guides that will be sent out at different points leading up to your wedding date that will aid you in making decisions.

With my special approach in documenting your big day -- it may or may nit consist of me hyping you up the whole time or making weird noises -- I promise that you will feel your very best in front of the camera a few minutes into it. 

During most of your wedding day, I want you to forget about that I am even there taking the photos, and just live in the moment as much as possible. 

Together, I know we can dream up the most perfect mood board inspiration board for all your wedding vibes! Cannot wait to start planning and documenting your big day!

I do things a bit differently than most. My approach in documenting your big day is to capture not only the "must have" moments, but also the in between overlooked moments. This is a special mix of me directing you and your love through a prompt, but mostly watching the moment unfold to get those candid, documentary, timeless photos.

I want you and your love to RELIVE these moments every time you look through your images. These preserved moments should bring back all the authentic emotions and happiness that were felt during your wedding day.

I mean...isn't that what everyone wants in their wedding photos???

Photographing your wedding day is WAY MORE than just capturing the "perfect" moment. It is about documenting your day authentically.

Documenting timeless wedding moments, stories, and emotioins

1. Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior, and He is the foundation of my business.

3. I have had a camera in my hand ever since elementary school.

4. My first language is Polish, and I started to speak English when I was 4 years old.

5. I married my best friend and the love of my life, Colin, in January 2023.

6. I have two crazy, sweet kitties - Parmi + Toothless (yes - he looks like the dragon from How To Train Your Dragon).

7. I am an enneagram 7 hehe.

8. Besides photography, traveling is one of my biggest passions. If I could, I would love to see and spend a night at every airport in the world

ON THE DAYS I AM NOT SHOOTING A WEDDING OR SWAMPED WITH EDITING...

1. Probably taking a walk around Marhsalls/Home Goods! Literally the best stores. I have an obsession with candles so you'll see my basket full of those for sure!

2. RE-READING the Throne of Glass series, or anything by Sarah J. Maas! Hands down the best series by her, and I will stand by that statement. Currently trying to get into the ACOTAR series.

3. Being outside and doing literally anything -- biking, walking, reading in a hammock, fishing, hiking.

4. Sunset chasing -- especially during the summer/fall months! I LOVE finding new places with friends or my husband to just sit, chat, and chill while watching the sunset.

5. Coffee shop hopping -- during the week, usually while editing or getting work done, I LOVE finding new coffee shops, and it definitely beats sitting in an apartment all day. Cafe Equinoix in KS is the best.

6. FOOD -- literally any kind but favorites are sushi, steak, any kind of Asian dish, Polish food, and tacos

7. Traveling/sitting at airports - YES I know sounds really weird, but I love it. There is just something awesome about walking through a new, different airport, getting there early, people + plane watching. And I track flights in the FlightRadar24 app.

...YOU CAN FIND ME DOING THESE THINGS!

"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband."
Ephesians 5:25 - 33
